A fantastic fantasy novel.

I have to admit, I'm not sure I saw much ground broken here, and it used many typical fantasy tropes, but on the other hand, it was very well written, and seemed to have an interesting history, without being overwhelming. Many fantasy novels tend to have long history sections that nearly put me to sleep, but this story did not do that.

The characters were fun and felt like they had many layers to them. It seemed like they agonized over every difficult decision in a way that did not seem forced, but felt very real.

My only complaint has nothing to do with the story itself, but the fact that I had to go out and buy a physical copy of the novel :). There is no US Kindle version, and my local library did not have a copy. I hope to donate my copy to them, so others can find this wonderful book.
